This 2-day class will introduce students to the basic techniques for etching designs onto red brass, copper, nickel and sterling silver. Students will experiment with acrylic paint and spray paint, rubber cement, permanent markers, permanent ink stamping pads, PnP paper, and a variety of other resists to create textures, patterns, and images on metal. Etched plates may also be used to texture metal using the rolling mill.

Students will have the opportunity to make a number of pieces of jewelry, such as pendants, keychains, earrings, and bracelets.

Mona will also demonstrate how to add beautiful iridescent color to your metal.

All materials and use of tools are included in the price of the workshop.
